This Balsamic Lemon Poppyseed Vinaigrette is the perfect summer salad dressing. A little tangy, a little tart, and perfect with so many salad variations!
You may have seen my Summer Berry Spinach Pasta Salad the other day, where I introduced this amazing Balsamic Lemon Poppyseed Vinaigrette. It combines two of my very favorite flavors – lemon and balsamic vinegar – in one amazing vinaigrette that is perfect for any of your favorite salads.
Lemon Poppyseed dressing is fantastic in its own right, but adding balsamic vinegar elevates it to another level of yum. It has the perfect balance of sweet, tart, tangy, and creamy that goes amazingly well with any type of salad, but I especially love it on salads that have fruit in them. They’re a match made in heaven.

Whatever salad you decide to try this on first, you won’t be disappointed! A little bit goes a long way, so you can try it on several salads! Keep stored in the fridge in an airtight container and shake or mix well before each use as it will separate a bit after sitting.
